It is difficult to say what is impossible, for the dream of yesterday is the hope of today and the reality of tomorrow.

It’s a sad state of affairs when the highlight of your day is the realization that tODAY YOU CAN BUY BEANS.
friendly reminder that!! self diagnosis is just as good as a professional diagnosis and saying that it isnt is classist and ableist uwu
I have cancer. Your post gave me cancer. That is my self diagnosis and will be sending you the million dollar medical bills shortly.
It looks like OP deleted the original post and kinda backtracked/apologized for it, but I’ve been seeing similar posts floating around tumblr for a while now and I’m feeling fucking ornery today.
Look. It’s not classist or ableist to say that professional diagnosis is, in fact, better than self-diagnosis, because this is what medical professionals are TRAINED TO FUCKING DO. Doctors and psychiatrists and nurse practitioners and physician’s assistants and dentists go to school for a long fucking time for their diagnostic privileges, and there’s a fuckton of hands-on training with mentors and preceptors and such. Reading shit online and then cherry-picking a diagnosis for yourself doesn’t remotely compare.
I mean. For fuck’s sake. If self-diagnosis was as legitimate as professional diagnosis, then we’d have a LOT of med students with appendicitis running around. But we don’t, because they don’t actually have appendicitis: it’s just that right lower quadrant pain and nausea suddenly seem WAY MORE DIRE when you’re, you know, reading about appendicitis.
Which isn’t to say some of them don’t have appendicitis, but you know how you make sure? YOU GO TO A FUCKING MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL. And they’ll do some blood tests and order some imaging and analyze this information in conjunction with your signs and symptoms to determine if you actually need to get your appendix surgically removed, BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE TRAINED TO DO.
I know I keep using medical examples when I suspect OP is talking about psych, but…you know what? Terms and conditions still apply. Psychiatry and psychology are immense, knotty subjects, and the people who specialize in it go through sooooooo muuuuuuuch training to do so, because minds and brains and thought patterns and personalities are hella complicated. There’s a reason we explore social history and medical problems and medications and substance issues whenever we work with psych patients — this shit is intersectional as hell, and it stacks.
I’m not saying self-diagnosis has no value whatsoever. If you know something is off, then you know something is off and that’s completely valid. But for the love of GOD, if you think you have a genuine problem, please get your ass to a professional. Not only do they have the capacity to diagnose the actual problem, but they have the capacity to determine the best way to address it.
As Ruthless Martin has been all over my dash tonight, here’s a headcanon for you.
'Teague Martin' isn't his real name. When he first started out playing the part of Overseer, the real one he killed for the uniform had a missive in his coat pocket. He was far enough afield that anyone who knew him in person wasn't in a position to out someone stealing his identity.
When ‘Martin’ decided he was ready to don the mantle for good, it was a small enough matter tracking down anyone who’d known the real one… and, come to that, anyone who might stand a chance of recognizing the man he was before. He is diligent, and patient. So patient.
Either by means of the knife, by blackmail, or by coin, anyone who could give the lie to his ruse has long since been silenced. Teague is careful to keep it that way.
